In this 10-minute video Lynne McClure introduces NRICH's Magic Vs problem to a small group of teachers in a professional development setting. She demonstrates how a "Low Threshold, High Ceiling" problem, with minimal skill requirements, can be approached by nearly all learners, and yet can elicit sophisticated mathematical thinking. As Lynne leads participants through a sequence of challenges, she models good questioning and communication practices and discusses instructional strategies. The Magic V problem and a follow-up video are cataloged separately.
